Looking to gussy up your iPhone or iPad home screen? Lifehacker reports on a "fun little trick" that changes your lame, old square folders to awesome circle folders. All it takes its setting a very small image—like 3 pixels by 3 pixels small—as your home screen wallpaper on any device that can run iOS 9.3, according to Cult of Mac.

It's unclear why only some folders are affected and why the folders affected change based on the image you use. In fact, the whole thing is pretty unclear. "It does look cool, even if we don't understand why it's happening," Cult of Mac states. (More iPhone stories.)
